I am sure this is simple but just can't figure it out.

I am trying to switch back to default newsletter signup for magento but am running into some issues.

When I use

{{block type="core/template" template="newsletter/subscribe.phtml"}}

The signup block displays but nothing is captured to the subscriber list

And if I use

{{block type="newsletter/subscribe" template="newsletter/subscribe.phtml"}}

Nothing displays at all.


using {{block type="core/template" template="newsletter/subscribe.phtml"}} will never work because then the template does not know the form action url.

It should work with {{block type="newsletter/subscribe" template="newsletter/subscribe.phtml"}}. Try reverting to the default theme. Maybe there is an issue with your custom theme. The var/log folder should give you more details if there are errors.
